Environment at the heart of Tanzania's development: Lessons from Tanzania's National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (MKUKUTA)
The authors of this paper reveal how national leadership, local champions, and numerous initiatives, events, and conditions constitute the Tanzanian experience of environmental mainstreaming. Many of these drivers were drawn into Tanzania's National Strategy for Growth and Reduction of Poverty (MKUKUTA), enabling a significant leap forward in integrating poverty reduction and environmental management. The authors explain how this inclusive approach was achieved. They reflect on what has been accomplished, the challenges to come, and offer lessons that may help countries beyond Tanzania.
